    I don't understand the hostility. I think this was a good idea. I think the pictures have charm.

    A young photographer shoots paper negatives to achieve a look... Seems real to me.

    The artifacts from splashing developer and mottled processing appear real. The rebates appear real.

    As photographers, we should be looking to produce the perfect flaw. Especially in a digital age!

    The contrast is "funky" because they are paper negatives. Plus he might be bad at processing, I know I was when I tried LF.

    I like them. They have the ortho look of paper negs, and I think the posing is better on those ones than the digital shots.

    Interestingly, a USA Today shooter did this schtick almost a decade ago, for the Athens Olympics.

    And I seem to recall someone Frankensteining an old tiny Petzval lens onto a Canon 5D DSLR, but I won't go into that here....

    Yes, any excuse to shoot 4x5 is fine by me!

    I think maybe the hostility was a knee jerk reaction when at first glance it looked like it was a trick.

    Then closer examination shows they are genuine and that's all right.

    I'm not a LF kind of guy but for example, the second image with a bike... The dreamy fuzzy effect is all on the background but stops abruptly just for the athletes face and the shirt. "USA" is perfectly clear with no distortion. What the heck...?
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    I think they're interesting and fun. Naturally black and white vs color gives the images an added interest.

    BUT if you printed the digital in black and white and controlling depth of field and other aspects you'd have more interesting pictures as well.

    I don't know why we're over thinking this.

    Just enjoy it.

    By the way, check out Mark Tucker's work for a great working photographers work.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    That's the way petzval's look when used for negative sizes too large for their original purpose.
